Dott into 8/1 for Ladbrokes Mobile Masters after Higgins win

GRAEME DOTT’S win over John Higgins in the Ladbrokes Mobile Masters earns him a 8/1 quote for the tournament with the sponsors having been cut from 20/1.

Dott’s victory was the fourth win out of four games for the pre-match outsider as he started at 13/8. Higgins was a 4/9 chance to beat his fellow Scot.

Tuesday’s afternoon session sees current tournament favourite (5/2) Ronnie O’Sullivan bid to become the first winning match favourite as he is 4/9 to overcome Mark Allen.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “A huge gamble is developing on O’Sullivan as all four pre-match favourites have fallen so far. The Ladbrokes Mobile Masters now appears wide open. ”
